Bar Agricole Restaurant Review

: From the concrete floor to the colored recycled wood paneling lining one wall, the minimalist black booth seats and artist Nikolas Weinstein's sculpted "curtains" of glass tubing that diffuse light from its skylights, Bar Agricole is a delight to behold and one of the few SoMa joints that actually lives up to its neighborhood's industrial reputation. As for the mostly organic food and drinks, the restaurant seems to lean on its deserved attention for first-rate mixed libations --- the Gin Daisy made with genever, lemon and house-made strawberry shrub, for example --- but its short, seasonal dinner menu rewards those who stay to eat. The kitchen sources ingredients from Bay Area farms and ranches as well as seafood from the California coast. (Former chef/partner Melissa Reitz has left the restaurant, and Seth Stowaway is now the chef.) Guests can start off by nibbling on roast beef toast or pork country pâté. Larger plates might range from buttermilk fried chicken to Monterey king salmon complemented by farro, mizuna and baharat. Beignets paired with chocolate rum sauce may appear among the dessert selections.
